Moving from Prepaid to Postpaid (monthly) service

Are you a Prepaid Koodo or Public Mobile customer and want to move to Koodo monthly (Postpaid) services? Awesome! It’s easy to make the move. Here’s how:

  1. You’ll need to make sure that you have an active Prepaid Koodo or Public Mobile account. If your prepaid account has been suspended it must be topped up before you try to switch.
  2. Pick a phone (or SIM card if you’re bringing your own phone) from our Koodo Online Store.
  3. If you don’t already have a Koodo Postpaid account when you are adding your phone to cart you’ll need to select “I’m new to Koodo: Let’s get started”. Just so you know, even if you already have a Prepaid Koodo account, you’ll still need to select “I’m new to Koodo: Let’s get started” so we can set you up for monthly billing.
  4. If you received a promo code from us in either an email or SMS then you’ll be able to redeem it on the “Your Order” page. Check out Redeeming your Koodo promo code to see how.
  5. Next, you’ll need to pick a plan and if you want to keep the same phone number then follow the steps in Moving Your Number to Koodo.
  6. You’re all done! You’ll now need to wait for your phone or SIM to arrive!

Heads up! There are a couple of things you need to know when you’re moving from Prepaid to a monthly billed account:

  • Until your Koodo package arrives you’ll still have service with your current provider. If you are planning on moving your number to Koodo make sure you keep it active. You will receive an email on how to transfer your phone number over to Koodo once your phone is on its way to you!
  • Once you receive your phone and are set up you can register for Self Serve! If you’ve not yet received your Koodo phone or gotten an email confirming your new line has been activated, then please do not try to register for Self Serve as it may cause a delay in establishing your services.
  • If you move from Koodo Prepaid or Public Mobile to Koodo Postpaid services either in-store or over the phone then there will be a $40 connection fee to get your service switched over and connected. However, this fee is waived for online orders.

Moving from Prepaid to Postpaid is a great option if you want to expand the services available to you from Koodo. You’ll also have access to loads of great extra features from Koodo.
